economy still in front of us that we need solutions for. and i think the women can very much be part of that debate in bringing it forward. >> i've always been struck by the fact that even when there weren't 20, that the women senators have always bonded across party lines. and across ideological lines. i know that lisa murkowsky's vote against gun background checks was a big disappointment to many of you and she was supposed to be the host of tonight's get-together until it was moved to the white house. and heidi heitkamp, how difficult might that conversation with with the white house. we told that the white house was very angry with her to have voted against the background checks. >> you know, andrea, both heidi heitkamp and lisa murkowsky voted for the gun trafficking bill. there was a measure that they were willing to support to end gun trafficking, straw purchasing, pro enforcement measures. so i think there's bipartisan support for these bills, i think we can find consensus going forward and we have to work a little harder. i find the women to be very open to these issues and
to boosting the economy and creating jobs, gop leaders have stuck to one solution. cut spending. >> it's time to cut spending. >> try and reduce the level of spending here in washington. >> our goal here is to cut spending. >> the sequester, it does cut spendi ing spending. >> cut spending. oh, sure, that'll fix everything, right? wrong. president obama repeatedly warned that last month's automatic budget cuts would hurt our economy and slow down our recovery. >> my budget also replaces the foolish across the board spending cuts that are already hurting our economy. >> but speaker boehner, majority leader cantor, and the other far right wingers wouldn't budge. and now the cuts are hurting air travelers. the faa has been forced to slash hours for 47,000 employees. including 15,000 air traffic controllers. and we're seeing airport delays all across the country. surely boehner and cantor are -- would be flying high. after all, they got those spending cuts they wanted to badly, didn't they? not quite. instead, they're still on the attack against the president. pushing the twitter hashtag obama fl
is broken. it doesn't meet the needs of our economy and security. we need to move forward with this debate on how to make sure that our immigration system moving forward does meet the needs. >> i'm hearing it sounds like a lot of the things i heard after 9/11 which is that you think really what is broken here when we are talking about this specific case is interagency cooperation. >> we have made great strides over the last ten or 11 years making sure there is better cooperation and communication. more needs to be done. in the case of boston the two suspects we weren't able to track their movements, what they were doing and making sure that we had a handle on some of the folks that did have the opportunity or the proclivity to be involved in terrorism activities. >> if you watched yesterday some serious fireworks during the judiciary committee hearing. let me play that for folks. >> if you have ways to improve the bill, offer an amendment when we start mark up in may. i say that particularly those who are pointing to what happened, the terrible tragedy in boston as i would say an excuse fo
that people view as specific predictors of where the economy is going. and again, you can see while it did go down in august of 2012, we've essentially had six straight months of either flat or up and then we had a down. and, again, we would normally want to see something like three months of a trend before we made too much of this. but the fact is, that's not -- it's not a good news. so the question is, well, why is this happening? we've had -- first we've had soft spots in the economy for the last two or three springs. might be another one of those. but you have had the payroll tax increase go into effect. you've had sequestration go into effect. you have no growth in people's incomes. that was the more disappointing numbers out of the last unemployment insurance report. and if people don't have money, they can't spend money. and finally, we're being affected in the slowdown in europe in particular and the slowdown in the emerging markets. our export growth has fallen to about zero at the moment because there isn't demand overseas for our products. so it feels like a little bit of a soft sp
the u.s. economy is going to be 3% larger. bad news is nothing's changed other than the way we calculate the size of the u.s. economy. >> oh, my goodness. >> great. >> thanks for being here. you added a lot. mika, thank you so much. mika, you're going to try to make the jump? >> no. well, maybe. we'll see. >> maybe the surface. we'll see. >> i like the surface. using it to cover myself. >> a.j., phone home. it's way too early, what time is it, mike? >> it's time for "morning joe." right now other than a.j. clementi's first day on the job, the most important thing is it's time for chuck todd. >> now. >>> the surviving boston bombing suspect starts to answer investigators' questions. legal experts and lawmakers debate his rights. this morning we're talk to the top lawyer at the acclu. congressman peter king who says the suspect should be treated like an enemy combatant. >>> back in washington senator marco rubio tries to steer his party to an immigration deal. some veteran republicans raise new questions and an up and comer could end up being a roadblock the size of texas. >>> in the wake
to the economy championed by republicans. call it an obsession with the deficit or demand for austerity that's been coming from all quarters of the republican party since 2008. >> we can't continue to spend money we don't have. >> we can't just keep spending money we don't have. >> it's time to cut spending. >> unfortunately, the facts do not support their thesis. there is now a chorus of commentators, businessowners and corporate titans, who all accept that taking chunks out of an already melancholic economy will do nothing but sustain the misery. an individual who runs the world's largest bond fund said this in an interview. "the uk and almost all of europe have erred in terms of believing austerity, fiscal austerity in the short term is the way to produce real growth. it is not. you've got to spend money." yet, despite this expert opinion, the republican party led by chairman reince priebus launched a twitter campaign yesterday attempting to blame the president for a policy that they, themselves, absolutely adore. it was pegged to the increasing impact of sequestration on domestic air tra
said, joe. she marked a total sea change in britain's relationship with the market economy before she came into power and anything that was considered important in the post-war british era was controlled by the state. nobody would do that today. she had a very permanent difference in the way britain see the mark of the economy and we are now a country which is the product of margaret thatcher's economic vision. >> steve rattner, i have been amused by commentary coming out of great britain one after another after another kr criticizing margaret thatcher on how she took on the unions and there is that line it had to be done. you were a "the new york times" reporter there. you have said the margaret thatcher is why great britain is great britain today and not italy or spain or greece. >> look. i agree. to me, it seems very clear that when she did was to save great britain from economic irrelevance and i think what may explain a little bit of the difference between the british view and the american view is that what she did was radical by british standards because britain had moved so clo
marathon runners and that has fostered culture and now, even a whole economy you wouldn't know existed unless you went looking. this is a runner named ambi burrfoot. he won the marathon in 1968. he was less than a mile from the finish yesterday when the explosions put there. it is hard to believe this attack targeted the marathon, but even if it was hit as a symbol of something else, it was hit in a way that mean it is world to a whole community of people who run. he wrote today in runners world, this wasn't just an attack against the marathon. it was our use of the streets. we have used our public roadways for annual parades, protest marchers, marathons and all over manner of events. the roads belong to us and their use represents a part of our free and democratic tradition. i trust and believe that will not change in the future. not in boston, not at the boston marathon and not in other important event. we cannot tent violent akts koent threaten our great institution, but our institutions did not become great by following a path of timidity and cowardess. we can only hope it will ris

of our economy. that's not what happens. there is no evidence whatsoever to demonstrate that workplace safety regulations by osha make any impact on a business's ability. i would argue that a facility like this that blows up, not only do you have the devastation of people who've been killed, you have now a lost numbers of jobs and you have a community that's completely devastated by this disaster. >> yeah. this is a perfect example of -- i don't -- i cover public life for a living. i don't think very often who's regulating huge warehouses of nitrates that are sitting there and could blow up. that's someone's job, right? someone is out there doing this. one place is the chemical safety board. they do post disaster investigations. they try to create recommendations. here's a statistic to give you a sense, celeste, about the squeezing there is on regulatory bodies more fully. those gray bars are recorded incidents, right, chemical workplace incidents and those orange bars are investigations. what you see is a gap opening up between the two. does that track with what you have seen, celeste

of the economy beginning, of course, with the subprime crisis, so that really added fuel to the fire, made people angry, afraid, concerned, feeling like the country they lived in was not the country they grew up in, and so on. i think those are the two main things. the debate that began about gun control i think clearly has raised the temperature even more. sirchlts we just spent the last half hour talking about the fabric of american society being woven even tighter in times of tragedy, but can't forget about the fact that there are certain pockets about deep dissatisfaction. >> we're on two tracks in this country. if you go back to when i was a kid or a young man, we're in a much better place now racially than we were back then. on the other hand you have a proliferation of these groups. because of the changing demographics, and that sort of thing. one of the things i'm curious about, though, is why this does not get more coverage in the media. i think this is an important trend in the society, very significant, mark's group monitors this stuff heavily, but does not get a lot of traction in the

tragedies that disable our workers, devastate our families, and damage our economy. now it looks increasingly like the fertilizer plant that exploded last wednesday may have been a preventible tragedy. according to reuters, the plant had been storing more than 1300 times the amount of ammonium nitrate fertilizer that would normally alert the u.s. department of homeland security to a possible safety oversight. that's 100 times more than the amount of ammonium nitrate used in the oklahoma city bombing. remembertive thompson from mississippi and a ranking member of the house committee on homeland security released a statement saying, quote, it seems this manufacturer was willfully off the grid. yet we understand the department of homeland security did not even know the plant existed until it blew up. i strongly believe if the proper safeguards were in place, the loss of life and destruction could have been far less extensive. while many of the initial mist relatives boston quickly appeared to come into focus, in texas, we're left mostly with unanswered questions. first and foremost,
economy and we protect the future of our kids and grandkids? or are we going to do something that's got a very short-interpret payback? so when i look at the keystone pipeline, it is a 40-year investment in bringing very dirty oil that we can then ship to the chinese. if it isn't dug out of our country it isn't sent to our country. it just goes through our country. whereas in fact i see a completely different way to respond to this. i think that if we respond through american business to solve this energy and climate problem, we will make ourselves richer, healthier and we will respond to the biggest challenge of our generation. >> five years ago i was convinced watching the politics of climate change, if you will, that this was moving in a direction where you had sort of -- it was getting out of politics. then all of a sudden it's become more politicized. you see this, what candidate obama said in 2008 about climate change, yes, what he said at his nug gu inaugural, but it seems the politics of this issue has scared democrats again. >> i don't think there's any question. we went throug
